Project Pinterest-Rolo Stuffed Crackers

Like everyone else, I am addicted to Pinterest and I've decided to actually try some of the things I pin. 

This month, I decided to try this pin-Rolo stuffed Ritz Crackers, which originated on Something Swanky. The original post can be found here.

When I saw the pin on Pinterest, I knew this was a snack I wanted to try to make. It looked simple and delicious. Plus, I thought that if I have the ingredients on hand, these are easy to pull together if I have last minute guests.

You will need:
  • Rolos
  • Ritz Crackers
 I couldn't find regular sized Rolo so I used Mini Rolo.
Place crackers on a cookie sheet, top with Rolo (because they were Mini, I used two per cracker) and bake at 350 until chocolate is melted.

Top with a second cracker, let cool and enjoy.

The Verdict:
These were so easy to make and tasted really good. In fact, I've made these several times! A couple of things to note...I baked them for about 5 minutes. The chocolate won't be melted, but will be soft enough that when you press the second cracker down, the Rolo will get squished.

I tried making them with one Rolo per cracker and two Rolos per cracker and if you used the Mini Rolo, you definitely need to use two. I later made these using full size Rolo and the cracker/chocolate/caramel ratio was much better.

The original post from Something Swanky said to bake them. I have since started making these in the microwave, which is much quicker (about 20 seconds). I've served this both right after making them (when the Rolo is still warm) and after they've cooled (allowing the chocolate/caramel to harden). Both ways are good.

I've decided to keep Rolos and Ritz Crackers around so that I can make this at a moments notice. This is a pin that worked and one that I will make again.


  1. Oh man, this is genius! Just added it to my pinterest food board! I'm SO going to have to try these! I LOVE rolos!!

  2. Genious idea!!
    Cant wait to try it

  3. I never would have thought about this. Genius! It looks very yummy.

  4. This would be a fun snack for my teens to share with their friends. I love that you used the microwave eventually. I was thinking that's probably how I'd do it. Thanks for the details.

    Happy Sharefest. I hope you have a lovely weekend.
